Techniques of axial strain-controlled fatigue testing at elevated temperature are described. The specimen design incorporates thin ridges for attaching the extensometer arms; details of the design are provided to avoid premature failure at these discontinuities. Special problems of specimen gripping, alignment, and break detection at high temperature are discussed for both mechanical and closed-loop hydraulic testing machines.
